Life always gives us some form of limitation. This is ultimately a good thing because it gives us a starting point for our own personal development.

Every one of us — regardless of our background, socioeconomic status, or any other variable — has our own unique set of personal hang-ups and challenges. I like to think of them as our life “themes.” They often show up in different forms throughout our life.

These limitations set the stage for various aspects of our life. How we deal with them (or don’t) shapes everything from the career we choose to the kind person we ultimately become.

Sometimes limitations are physical — for example, a birth defect that you must learn to use to your advantage. Sometimes they are emotional — maybe you’re closed off in certain ways and have to learn to express yourself effectively. Sometimes they are psychological and manifest as a poor self-image that you must overcome.

Personally, I was attracted to the self-development field in my teens because I had confidence issues.

What are your most challenging limitations or “life themes” and how have you used them to your advantage?
